Principal's Message

Hello Indian Run Families,

We had a fantastic week that was highlighted with an AWESOME field day! Thank you so much to our amazing PTO for providing our students such a fun day and opportunity! It was so fun watching our students smile, laugh, work together, and support each other. Just an awesome experience all together! Thank you PTO!

October is here and we have so much to look forward to this fall. Please look below for some specific IRE updates.

Have a great weekend!

Adopt a Family

Are you experiencing economic hardship such as: job loss, death of a family member, sudden move, divorce, health issues, or an unexpected emergency? Dublin City Schools partners with many organizations that can help! An upcoming opportunity is Welcome Warehouse's Adopt-A-Family/Holiday Assistance program in December. If you are interested in holiday assistance, the deadline to let your school counselor know is OCTOBER 22nd, 2021. See attached flier for more information.


Panorama Survey (Grades 3-5)

Student well-being is one of the District’s top priorities.

We plan to administer a social-emotional learning (SEL) questionnaire to students in grades 3-12. SEL describes the mindsets, attitudes, and feelings that help students succeed in school, career and life, such as growth mindset, self-efficacy and sense of belonging. These results will help us better understand ways we can support students' social and emotional needs.

Fall Harvest Parties

We are excited to be able to host classroom parties this year! IRE will have these on October 29th.

  • If you are interested in supporting your classroom teacher, please reach out to them directly.

  • How could you help? Share arts, crafts, activities, ideas, etc. to make for a fun Harvest Party.

  • Food will not be consumed at the parties. PTO will be sending home small goodie bags to all students.

  • Limited volunteers: 1 per classroom, to support the parties.

  • To mitigate the spread of COVID, we will not include costumes or a costume parade this year.

  • Our 5th Grade Principal Advisory Team will help us organize a Spirit week (October 25-29). Stay tuned for their creative and fun dress up ideas :)

Syntero: Free 1 Day Workshop for Students

With the school year underway, we are aware of continued adjustments and challenges students are experiencing.

Please sign your student up for the age-appropriate option. If the option you are looking for is not listed, the workshop is full.
